Nordic Walking Season Kick Off!

What a week!

Saturday was our first Nordic Walking class of 2011. Thank you to Julie for stepping in to introduce 13 newbies to the joys of Nordic Walking.

Hoigaard’s Nordic Walking Tuesdays kicked off at Thomas Beach on Lake Calhoun in Minneapolis, 13 walkers.

Wednesday I was at a corporate wellness event sharing Hoigaard’s passion for healthy outdoor lifestyles with 1200 employees in 4 hours.  Wonder how many are thinking of trying the poles.

Arboretum Outdoors with Hoigaard’s was Thursday featuring free Nordic Walking at 1pm and 6pm.  A total of 38 walkers during the afternoon.

Friday I snuck out of the International Wolf Center Retreat at lunch time taking 7 women with me for a quick walk down to the lake and back.

Finished the week this morning at Richfield Community Wellness Expo once again talking “go green, not screen” in an effort to get people to go outdoors and play.

Results for the first week:  71 Nordic Walkers on trail!  and even better – seeing my walking friends after our long winter!  It was so good to reconnect and catch up with their lives while we enjoyed our walks.  Nordic Walking Talking, I love it!

Hope to see you all soon!
